A rescue plane carries a package of emergency supplies to be dropped at a point that is very close to the target. The plane travels with a velocity of 75m/s and flies 135m above the target. How far away (horizontally) from the target must the pilot release the package?
how long does it take to fall 135m? 4.9t^2 = 135, so 5.25 seconds
So, how far does the package move horizontally in that time?
distance = speed * time
